Sorry about the lack of posts lately... Things at home in the "real world" are needing my attention these days...
DIY Photo Tile Coasters and Gift Tag Poem
These things were all over the place during the holidays. These are some I made for gifts during the holidays- and still need to mail....oops! Like I said, other things have needed my attention...Sorry about that. The gift will come ...
HERE is where you can download the gift-tag-poem I wrote to go with these-if you want to make them in the future, or for Valentine's Day. Although-you may need to change a few words on the poem -to make it fit-and you have my permission to do so. ☻
OR you can get the words to the poem here. PLEASE REMEMBER THIS IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY! Do not publish this or claim it as your own.
Supplies for Photo Tile Coasters:
Tiles from Home Depo or Lowes- any kind you like
Felt circles (like to go on the bottom of chairs)
Clear Acrylic Sealer (found at Lowes or Home Depo)
1.If you pick tiles like I did, the porcelain black and white ones, you will need to sand the edges and paint the edges and bottom so they don't look so much like a tile.
2. When it is dry, modge podge your photo to the top. I sanded the edges of my photos to give it a distressed look.
3. When that is completely dry, and you made need to wait a few days, apply a clear acylic sealer. We used a spray and you can buy this at Home Depo. or Lowes. It seals the photo, so when you put a cup on it, the coaster will be protected.
4. Apply the felt circles to the bottom of the coaster and you are done! Your coaster is ready for use!
As always, if you make some of these, I would love to see them. Leave a comment and I'll take a look. Happy Crafting!
